Have you ever come across a random picture of a bedroom or the interior space of a house that is beautifully decorated and looks very cozy and inviting? If the answer is yes, then the chances are high that you might have wished for a house upgrade and thought about an innovative and simple way to transform your house and make it more inviting and comfy.
Creating an ideal inner space that is comforting, inviting, cozy, and welcoming doesn’t mean that you have to break your bank. You can obtain a perfectly comfortable and warm home by making subtle yet significant changes to the interior.
Here are seven ways to make your house comfy and inviting.
Upgrade Your Bedding
Did you know that your bedding plays a significant role in setting the vibe of your bedroom? Your bedroom is the place where you can relax and unwind after a long tiring day. It is also a quite personal and private space, which is why it should have a touch of personalization. That said, we recommend opting for a dramatic bed, preferably one with four posters. Choose the best mattress that suits your sleeping position, and don’t neglect the selection of comfy sheets, such as Puffy bamboo sheets.
As a rule of thumb, you should always opt for extra comfy sheets to make your bed instantly cozier and more welcoming.
Add Pillows and Throw Blankets
Another effective way to upgrade your home and make it instantly cozier is by adding a few extra pillows and throw blankets. Find some nice throw blankets of premium quality and place them strategically in your bedroom and living area.
By placing a nice and comfy throw blanket on your couch or sofa, you will make all visitors feel welcomed and cozy. They won’t take much time and feel at home. By keeping some extra pillows and throwing blankets on your bed, you induce a comfy, nice, and decorative touch to the overall place.
If you want to put your nice throw blankets on display, you can use a basket or blanket ladder for this purpose.
Opt for Comfy Sofa/ Couch for the Living Area
If you are a fan of interior décor, you may have already noticed what a massive difference a nice sofa or a comfortable couch can make to the overall vibe of the house. If you don’t want to hit the pillow and sleep instantly after getting home from a long day, you may want to include a comfy couch in the living area and make yourself comfy and pampered as you rest in it. This addition of a comfy couch will have a significant impact on the entire room and make you feel instantly welcomed.
Include a Fireplace
If you are afraid of fire accidents and don’t want to have a real fireplace inside your home, you can also opt for a decorative mantle area. Perhaps, your interior space is too small to adjust a fireplace. In that case, you can indulge in a DIY project and craft a faux fireplace yourself while using lights and bulbs. It is important to mention here that the fireplace should elevate and complement the remaining space where it is set. For some additional touch of luxury and warmth, you can also opt for placing a painting or mirror right above the fireplace.
You will be surprised to know how lighting and the perfect coordination of the fireplace can make a massive change by affecting the overall vibe and feel of the room.
Place Flowers and Plants
If you are upgrading your hose in the winter, there is a great chance that you aren’t paying attention to including some touch of freshness. While you must ensure that no cold breeze enters your house, you must also ensure that a touch of freshness lingers inside your home. And the best way to do so is by including flowers and plants in your interior space. Don’t miss out on crucial spots, such as the kitchen and the bathroom. You have a wide variety of flower options available in the markets and online stores.
By placing plants or flowers in your bathroom, you will instantly freshen up the area. We also recommend placing some new towels and changing the faucets to add a touch of comfort and luxury. Sometimes, the addition of a few scented soaps and other toiletries can also do the trick to make you feel pampered and cozy.
Install the Right Lighting
As mentioned before, the right lighting can induce the perfect atmosphere in your home. You don’t necessarily have to spend a fortune on generating the perfect atmosphere. All you need to do is replace those extra bright lights with low and dimmed lights. And voila! You are all set for the perfect cozy atmosphere.
The same trick goes for your bedroom. If you want to transform your bedroom’s entire feel and frequency, you need to pay attention to the kind of lighting you are using. For instance, you may want to remove the bright bulb hanging over your bed and place two dim lamps on the side of your bed. However, keep some spare bright lights at home, especially if you have a cocktail party.
For the winter, we also recommend skipping electric lights and placing candle lights (scented and unscented) around the house to induce comfort, warmth, and great smell.
Opt for Window Treatment
You might have heard it before: your eyes are the window to your soul. Similarly, the windows of your house are the soul of your house. In the absence of proper blinds and curtains, your house will look cold and bland. That said, we recommend opting for long velvety curtains, preferably starting from the ceiling and reaching the floor.
When it comes to choosing the perfect colors for the curtains, we recommend avoiding extra bright colors, especially when the objective is to make the interior space more inviting, warm, and welcoming.
